Hollin Jones is a classically trained pianist who found the lure of blues, jazz and hi-tech recording too much to resist...
Hollin Jones
Hollin cut his teeth producing music on the venerable Portastudio four-track cassette tape recorder. He navigated his way through the hardware era to the world of computer-based recording where he lives his creative life on the cutting-edge of audio technology.

Formerly a lecturer in soundtrack composition, videographics and music production, Hollin is now a widely read and respected freelance writer focusing on music technology, multimedia and everything Mac. He is also a renowned Reason expert and has published several highly regarded books on how to use this innovative DAW.

When he can find the time, Hollin produces his own music and performs with his band. He also writes scores for film and TV. And, if you ask him kindly, he'll even play keyboards on a session or two!
